LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lindsay Lohan's lawyer says the actress is committed to turning her life around and wants to record public service announcements about the dangers of domestic violence, alcohol abuse and drunken driving.
Mark Heller says in an interview that the actress' plans are independent of a criminal case that could return her to jail.
He says Lohan is undergoing intense psychotherapy sessions and has had an "epiphany" about issues that have landed her in court repeatedly since her first arrests in 2007.
Heller says he is meeting with a prosecutor Friday to discuss a possible resolution to a misdemeanor case that alleges Lohan lied about driving when her car smashed into a dump truck in June. Lohan has pleaded not guilty in the case, which also charges her with reckless driving.
